A Chrome extension allows users to see what's behind every website, from programming languages to fonts and analytics

A new Chrome extension called WhatRuns will help you see which technologies power any website, including its programming language, what fonts it uses and how it tracks visitors. The extension began as a way for founder Jijo Sunn to detect the top 50 ad networks and soon expanded to using pattern recognition to detect other aspects of a website, from frameworks and scripts to analytics and fonts.

Find a website particularly compelling? You can subscribe to be notified if it updates its software in the future. The extension currently works to detect the most current and popular tools, but the developers are working to expand to a comprehensive listing of older technologies.
